M.A.D. for Dummies

Andrew Liszewski at OhGizmo posted this vintage Cold War public service poster. It has great advice like placing a newspaper over your head during the blast.

It occurs to me that if you're reading the chart for the first time ONCE the bombs start falling, then it'd be too late to do #6: "Have food and water for several weeks of isolation."

Otherwise, they could have added a ninth one: "Call Khrushchev to negotiate nuclear disarmament."
